Solving the Canine Blood Shortage
Just like in the human world, when medical cases are critical, they can require blood donations. Unfortunately, canine blood supplies are low and always in need.
VEG is solving the blood shortage for our hospitals and our local veterinary partners by building a reliable supply. But we can’t do it alone, so we’re looking for canine blood donors.
The first step you can take toward saving pets in your community is to see if your dog can be a blood donor. If your dog is cleared to donate blood, we’ll schedule the first appointment at a convenient time for you.
